After some years using an EM-2000, I think about the possibility to change it for a new keyboard.
I have seen the new E-50. It has good things (usb, better screen, four variations in styles, more intro and endings) but my question is if I will lose something if I buy this kb (about sounds quality, styles quality, etc..
Are both keyboards similar at all?
Has E-50 better sounds, better styles?
I will appreciate opinions.
Thanks

I like it a lot. I may have an extra one for sale soon. It is way better than the EM2000.

50 has 61 keys, lighter keys and touch, no Beam. I think that's about it.

the E50's keys are also shorter by almost one centimetre (what is that in inches anyway? )
if you plat alot of piano, E60 should fit you better. if not, E50 is smaller, lighter and might be a better choise.

I only hit the ends of them anyway! Seriously I don't play piano, so I like the touch a lot. I'm selling my Roland A-37 controller because I miss the little flimsy keys.

May E-50 use old Roland styles (from E-86, G-1000)?

Yes, usually with no tweaking required (although, to get the best out of the multi-velocity drumkits, you usually need to work a little, here).

DonM said E50 is way better than the EM2000.
Yes, it seems better, but I lose something:
-no audio in
-no aftertouch
-no 40 wats

I think I will go to E50 finally. But salesman tell me to see and listen Yamaha PSR S700 (better kb, in his opinion) at similar price.
